Next one is into the head. If he is close enough to touch you, block his weaponry hand/arm with your offhand/arm, move toward him and shove the barrel of your gun straight up under their chin and pull the trigger. Then just step out of the way.

That has been documented too.

It's official. The fail has reached capacity and is now overflowing.

Neither I nor my wife have a CCW nor do we have plans to get one. The small town we live in just isn't dangerous. That and we really don't go anywhere but to work, the store and back home during daylight hours. We can't CCW at work nor at mostly any store in the area. If there is a problem, it will be in the house I think.

I have a 1911 in .45ACP in my quick safe, so it isn't like she will be the only one that is armed.

The Walther p22 was the only one she could operate after trying many at the store. It seems it would be wiser to have a gun that she can operate than a gun that can knock the guy down with one shot that she can't.
SoupNazi, I wanted to reply to this post, but I wanted to first tell you that I am glad that you found a weapon that your wife can use and that I am sympathetic to your situation. Please don't take this reply as a slam, but as genuine concern for your situation.

1st Paragraph: at only 12 ft, the BG will either be coming at her or start to come at her as soon as she fires. She will get off two shots at most and then will have to back peddle away from BG or will have to fight him for the gun. If 12 ft is the standard distance in your domicile, make sure to think about this scenario.

2nd Paragraph: Most of us have obtained CCW's to use, true. But I can give you some other reasons to get one now while you think you may not need one or may not use it; If you ever do need it, you will already have one, A CCW is easier to renew than to obtain initially, A time may come when you can no longer obtain a CCW as easily as you can now and you will want one, It helps show support when the government runs the numbers on the people currently in possession of CCWs. Basically, I didn't get one in my original state when they were easy to get and the laws changed on me - I was forever kicking myself and had to move 2,000 miles before I could eventually obtain one. I will never pass up the chance to have one again. Just something to think about while you have a choice.

3rd Paragraph: Many times, BGs will wait to see you leave to make sure the house is empty or the biggest protector isn't there, so you need to be sure the wife can handle it on her own. Also, if you have BGs that are targetting you, you should have layered security like alarms, panic room, etc. But don't count on you and the .45 for every defense encounter.

I hope that helps, because like I said, I really am sympathetic to your situation! I'm glad the wife is now armed and feeling better about protecting herself. Good luck!

I thank u for the advice. I certainly am not a tactics expert. Not police or ex military.
